HOW A WORK-TRADE WORKS

This is not a Job. 

Trained, experienced, hard-working locals earn $2.50/hour.

As an inexperienced traveler,

we would not (and by law could not) hire you for your help.

This is also not strictly Volunteering.

We are not a charity or a foundation

nor a cause for social justice.

We are a start-up of a couple of friends and dreamers

with big ideas, small budgets and a DIY attitude.

This is an Experience.

A work-trade is an inexpensive way for you to travel,

to live in community,

to learn first-hand about sustainable living,

to focus on personal growth,

to share skills with other travelers,

and to contribute to a project whose values you share.

We think we're building something pretty badass

and we want you to come get your hands dirty

and be a part of it with us!
